Recipes: Tequila Champagne Cocktails

Instead of Product Picks today, I thought it might be more helpful to showcase some recipes you can use as your plan your holiday parties or New Year’s Eve. I’m not sure about you, but I’m definitely all shopped out. Goodbye memories of shopping mall mobs, hello tequila champagne cocktails.

The folks at the tequila company Avion sent us these recipes, and they look pretty amazing. I’ve never mixed tequila and champagne before, so it’s new for all of us. Here they are…

Sparkling Avión Sangria

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Tequila Avión
  • 1 Bottle Sparkling Wine
  • 2 Cups Lemon Lime Soda

  • 2 Limes
  • 1 Pear Cut Into Small Pieces
  • ½ Pint of Rasberries

Method
Squeeze juice from half an orange and half a lime into the pitcher. Add ice to pitcher and Tequila Avión. Gently pour in sparkling wine and soda (so as not to diffuse all the bubbles). Stir gently and top with pear and raspberries. Serve in wine glasses.

  • ¾ oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz. Agave Nectar

Muddle strawberries in a shaker; add the remaining ingredients (except Champagne) in the shaker. Shake vigorously and then finely strain into a Champagne flute or coupe. Float 2 oz. dry Champagne on top and garnish with strawberry slice.
